In Jakarta, the capital city of one of the world’s most populous nations, underserved residents, most of whom are women, are using mobile technology to access unique business opportunities and gain the skills needed to lift themselves out of poverty. Grameen Foundation has developed two mobile initiatives in Indonesia, one of which is the Application Laboratory (AppLab) initiative that has established a multi-tier suite of data services designed to increase the incomes of the nation’s poor. These services are accessed through Ruma Entrepreneurs, a network of women entrepreneurs who own and operate mobile micro-franchising businesses. Following the success and learnings from the AppLab initiative, Grameen Foundation has also launched its Inclusive Business Tools initiative to build mobile technology tool for social enterprises, enabling them to work more effectively with the poor.
Positive Six went to Jakarta and Bali to shoot photos and video on two separate occasions. The first time was for the SEA economic summit where we shot in Jakarta and outlying areas on Wednesday, hopped a redeye to Bali that night, edited a package in our hotel room on Thursday that was played to the audience on Friday. We love this turn and burn work. It’s a huge challenge and definitely a special service, but one that our clients reply on regularly.
